This is a really cool story! He might be twice as old as most of the others but he certainly won't be the worst rider out there, even at 50. Just hope the bike is fast enough for him to at least cling on to the rear of the field...

I still remember him getting pole at Philip Island on the 400 Aprilia. He was the oldest man on the grid then too!

Go Jeremy. You are a legend and a nutcase (in the best sense of the term).

I hope it goes well, especially since they've dared to build a different chassis concept.

500 v twin Aprilia at Donington on a damp but drying track. I was screaming at the tele for him to win, but roberts jnr just pipped him as I remember.
The brough is his sort of weird thing, just like that funky 500 v twin.
Not sure I agree with these upper age limits, if your fast and safe who cares. And that ridiculous upper age limit in moto3 is a joke.

It's not ideal from a spectators point of view but Moto3 is designed to bring young talent up from national championships through the grand prix classes and idealy in to MotoGP. The organisers and their sponsors don't want 'old' guys hanging around taking up the rides in the junior class.
